New York Minute: Fireworks Can Be Distracting

The scene: Keyspan Park on Coney Island. Friday, August 24, 2007. The Thursday game was called due to fog and started as part of a doubleheader at 6:00 pm. That pushed the 7:00 pm game back to 9:00 which coincided with a 10:00 fireworks show.

Well, it was not distracting to Paul Lo Duca, making a rehab start for the Cyclones. Lo Duca, a Brooklyn native, managed to put the ball in play:

And later, the fireworks long over, Lo Duca provided some of his own:
